Proposed unsocial hours agreement - membership ballot


Agreement was reached by the NHS staff council executive last week on a new proposed unsocial hours agreement which, if accepted by the unions, will be incorporated into the AfC handbook. When the review of unsocial hours started in 2005 it was agreed that all our members working in the NHS should be balloted on any new proposed agreement. Accordingly a ballot will for all eligible members commence on 28th January and close on 18th February. The ballot papers will include a briefing on the new proposals and the full text of these proposals will shortly be available on the health sector pages of the union's website -
